It’s a shame – the unexpected sequel


It’s a shame

Written and posted with love.

Time for my verses, my Lord, my love.

”Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus and asked him a question, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that ‘if a man’s brother dies, leaving a wife but no child, the man shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother.’ There were seven brothers; the first married and, when he died, left no children; and the second married her and died, leaving no children; and the third likewise; none of the seven left children. Last of all the woman herself died. In the resurrection whose wife will she be? For the seven had married her.” Jesus said to them, “Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the story about the bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is God not of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong.” Mark 12:18-27

It’s a shame how we make Him like us so often.

Remote. Judgemental. Shaming. Ashamed. We make Him a dead God so often.

Just like us.

“He is God not of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong.”

It’s a shame.

He made us in His image. And then we go …

And re-make Him in ours.

  1. Well of course we make Him like us. Especially when we are looking for reasons to not believe. After all, if God is crummy like us, who would want to follow a god like that right?
